>"Maybe we could just duck into an alley somewhere, ze?" Marisa suggests.

> "Why don't we head back towards the route we came from?  There might be interesting pokemon there too"

> Casually proceed back the way we came, and through the gatehouse.  Once outside the city just wander off the main path towards somewhere we won't be seen.

> When we're alone:
>> "Similar to how you're not the simple device you seem to be, we're not your average humans either...  While we pretend to be stage magicians, we're the real thing~"
>> Float off the ground slightly and hold out a small danmaku sun in our palm (like a fist sized Royal Flare)
>> Expectant look at Alice and Marisa to show Rotom some magic or danmaku

> "Why don't we head back towards the route we came from?  There might be interesting pokemon there too"
>"That works too." Marisa nods.

> Casually proceed back the way we came, and through the gatehouse.  Once outside the city just wander off the main path towards somewhere we won't be seen.
>You lead your group back to the route you were on, coughing slightly as you once again enter pollen hell.
>You proceed to wander off the main path, steering the group and your pokemon into a nearby hedge maze.

> When we're alone:

>> Expectant look at Alice and Marisa to show Rotom some magic or danmaku
>You float up and conjure some danmaku motioning for the others to do the same.
>"Fennekin!?" your starter pokemon yelps in surprise when it notices this, staring up at you in amazement.

>The other pokemon are similarly surprised by their trainer's abilities, with Squirtle attempting to jump on Marisa's broom with her while Alice's Chepsin -- Albi if you recall correctly -- watches Alice and her dolls with interest.

>"Amazing." the pokedex drones, "I mean, I knew psychic humans existed, but I never thought I'd see them up close, let alone be assigned to some... How are you doing that light trick? Is it an illusion?"

> "That would be an incorrect assumption, as we're not psychic and can't tell each other's thoughts without casting mind-reading magic, and neither are we *necessarily* human"

> Point at the danmaku "Sort of, it's our way of resolving disagreements.  We summon beautiful patterns of these 'bullets' while simultaneously trying to avoid getting hit by the other's projectiles until someone admits defeat."
> "While they look threatening, they're quite harmless and can barely burn cloth.  As to what they're made of, they're a physical manifestation of an individual's magical energy"

> "I'd like to know what psychic humans *are* though?  Like what do you know about superhuman abilities?"

> "I'd like to know what psychic humans *are* though?  Like what do you know about superhuman abilities?"
>"Well, from the data I have on hand, I know that its possible for humans to be born with psychic powers. These commonly manifest as telepathy and telekinesis, but other powers such as illusions have been documented as well. Granted, most human psychics tend to pale in comparison with psychic pokemon, though with many years of training it's possible for human psychics to become quite powerful." the pokedex explains, "As for other superhuman abilities, there are rare cases where a human capable of sensing and/or manipulating Aura is born. Those individuals with the capacity, should they receive proper training, are capable of great feats using Aura."

>"And what exactly is Aura?" Alice questions.

>"Aura is a form of spiritual energy, essentially making up the life force or essence of all living things. It can also be used as a potent weapon in the hands of a capable user."

> "Where could we learn more about these psychic abilities and Aura?  Are there specialists in psychic Pokemon and people?"
>"Most psychic-specialist Gym Leaders and Elite Four members tend to be powerful psychics themselves," the pokedex explains, "As for Aura, unfortunately such users are far fewer in number. There are some known individuals in the Sinnoh region, though locating them would be difficult. The Lucario line of pokemon -- also originally native to that region, though there are established populations in many others, including Kalos -- are naturally adept in manipulating aura, so it's possible you may learn more about it from one of them as well."

> "I-I guess you could consider that?  It is a barrier that creates a sort of sub-dimension that's still in some ways linked to the dimension it was based upon...  But it's not huge or spherical like this outside-like world.  It has a complex border around it that makes it *seem* infinite, and while you can venture out in any direction as far as you'd like, if you turn back you'll find that you're not too far from where you started."

>Marisa simply shrugs while Alice nods before waving her hand in a so-so manner.

> Speaking of Alice what do we know about her?
>Honestly not much. You know she's a magician who specializes in dolls who carries around a sealed grimoire, and that she's a resident of Gensokyo. But truthfully you don't see her nearly as often as Marisa.

> "Do you have any information on what is known about other dimensions, or if their existence is even acknowledged?"

> "Additionally what do you know about Pokemon themselves here, are they considered 'magical' or 'supernatural' creatures?"
> Maybe that's why we can continue to exist in this dimension?
>"As a matter of fact, yes. Other dimensions are indeed confirmed to exist. This is best exemplified by the Alola region, where the boundaries between dimensions are infamously thin, and extradimensional pokemon do show up there from time to time. In fact, the foremost experts on interdimensional interaction with our world can be found there. Additionally, it's believed that several legendary pokemon commonly worshipped in the Sinnoh region exist in pocket dimensions of their own, and are themselves capable of interdimensional travel." the pokedex replies, "As for your other question, that is an interesting subject of debate. It has been known that they've been occasionally referred to as "Magical Creatures" in ancient prehistory, plus there is also the fact that Psychic, Fairy, and Ghost types exist as well. Pokemon science truly is interesting when you start delving into the depths of it."

>You look around, finding everyone as confused by the sneeze as you are before noticing a green haired pokemon with a white body peering out of one of the hedges.
>"R-R-Ralts!" it yelps when you lock eyes with it, before it quickly retreats back into the foliage

>"What was that?" Marisa questions.

>"It was a Ralts." the pokedex explains, "A Psychic and Fairy type capable of sensing emotions, though they do tend to be rather timid. It was likely just curious."

>"Hmm..." Marisa thinks for a moment, before smoking "What do you think, Patchy? Care for a little battle, ze?"
>"What about me?" Alice questions.
>"Uh... you fight the loser?"
>"If I may, pokemon battles are typically done until one side is unable to battle, so if you're playing loser, then I'd recommend visiting a Pokemon Center between matches."

>You move to a more open area.

>"Alright, now both of you put some distance between each other and face your opponent. Normally you would send your pokemon out of their pokeballs once the battle begins, but since they're already out, they can just take up a position in front of you."

>"When the battle begins, you both issue commands to your pokemon and you have the pokemon fight until all pokemon on one side are unable to battle. If either of you had more pokemon, then it's usually customary to agree how many pokemon each side is using, but since you both just have one at the moment, we can worry about that and other rules later on."

>"So it's somewhat like a spellcard duel in that regard..." Alice muses.

>The pokedex flips over, its screen changing to show a little interface of Fennekin with four slots next to it. Curiously, one of her slots seems to be blank.

Status:

Fennekin (Unnamed)
Gender: F
Type: Fire
Ability: Blaze
Moves:
> Scratch [Normal] - (35/35)
> Tail Whip [Normal] - (30/30)
> Ember [Fire] (25/25)

>"Let me know when you're done looking so that I may show Marisa her pokemon's data. In a normal fight, you usually won't know what moves the opposing pokemon has ahead of time, after all. Of course, if you'd rather see Squirtle's data as well, I can do that, as long as you're comfortable with Marisa seeing Fennekin's data in return."

>"What sort of information is indicated by the fraction in parentheses?"
>"That is PP. It's a measurement that serves as a rough estimate of how many times a pokemon can use a certain move before they're unable to perform it any further due to exhaustion. Once a pokemon runs out for a specific move it usually won't be able to use it for a while, which would force them to the other moves at their disposal. When they're completely out of options, they tend to Struggle until they collapse from fatigue if forced to continue fighting."

> "Also do you know what these moves actually do?"
>"Of course." the pokedex's screen changes, showing detailed information about each move, "I'd read it out loud, but I'd rather not give your opponent any advantages you didn't mutually agree to."

Details:
> Scratch [Normal] - Strikes the opponent with claws to inflict damage
> Tail Whip [Normal] - The user wags its tail cutely in an attempt to make the opponent let their guard down.
> Ember [Fire] -  Shoots small flames at the target. Has a small chance to inflict a Burn.
